General Discussion / Re: Wheel jack missing
« Last Post by ceegee on October 16, 2019, 08:32:12 pm »
As previously stated the vehicle does not come with a jack, why would it if there is no spare wheel?. I had my tyres rotated by the dealer at the service (£40+VAT) and was advised to have the tracking checked also, another £40+VAT. To rotate the wheels at home using a jack is a bit of a palaver as axle stands are needed to hold the car up whilst the jack is repositioned to lift the othe side of the car at the opposite side.

I had a CX 5 2.2 sport nav auto(2016) with AWD and covered 16K miles in 3 years, I now have a June 2019 Sport Nav auto petrol (2WD). Worked out the payback for the £1600 extra for the 150 HP diesel was 5-6 years based on 6K per year.Have not noticed a huge difference in fuel consumption as the AWD makes a car less economical anyway. The AWD did not appear to make a great difference to traction etc in the little snow we have had over the last 3 years as the tyres are(Toyo) summer tyres and provide little grip in even a light covering of snow. It takes a little getting used to the lack of low down torque of the diesel but as you are going for an auto this will not result in more left legwork to use the clutch.
My recommendation would be a 2wd petrol auto.

Well Bert you're a life saver, I have checked and yes the battery has to be removed to change the fuel filter, there is going to be hell to play now They have blatantly lied to me regarding this and to say I'm livid would be an understatement. Once again thanks very much.

I think I read somewhere that the battery needs to be removed to change the fuel filter on the diesels. Perhaps you’re got a new filter, although that wouldn’t explain why they’d lie about it.

Thanks for your replies and I will now take it up with them in writing and will post any eventual outcome.

I can't think why on earth they wouldn't admit disconnecting the battery not that I can think of a reason whilst just carrying out a basic service. If they'd have admitted it then a simple apology would have ended the matter for me.
